Algerian–Sahrawi relations


Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic

On 27 February 1976, the Polisario Front proclaimed the formation of the SADR. On 6 March 1976, Algeria recognized the SADR, the third country to do so,[1] and formal diplomatic relations were established soon after. A Sahrawi embassy was opened in Algiers that year.[2] Algeria rejects claims by Morocco to Western Sahara territory, all of which is claimed by the SADR.
